Every farmer's boy Bhould learn the great
natural law that governs the increase of
Bbeep. Five yearn ago, so says tlie Western
Sural, a lady down in Delaware sent to her
little grandson in Illinois $5 to invest in
sheep. His father bought him one ewe for
$4, leaving him a cash capital of $1. In
due time there was a pair of lambs. They
did well, and in the spring following there
A .1 IY.r. 1!
had ja Iamb. In the fill a batcher traded
five ewes for this little flock. These five
ewea each had twins. He sold, the ram
lambs for $5 each, and kept the ewes. His
clip last May was 103 pounds, which he
nold for 50 cents per pound, making $54.
He has sold now over $120 worth of wool
and sheep, and haa 22 sheep on hand. A
young man who will start with a few good
sheep, and as they increase, buy land at a
reasonable price, on which to raise all the
grass possible, and some turnips to keep bis
flocks, may in fifty years be worth from
one hundred thousand to a million dollars.
Every Southern State should protect all
sheep from injur; by dogs,and make the in
surance perfect.
In this connection, we reproduce the fol
lowing from the Field, Turf and Farm :
"A sheep-grower in Warren county,
Tenn., asks earnestly if steps shall not be
taken to tax useless dogs out of existence.
His experience is not pletaant. In tho
summer of 1868 he bought forty-six head of
th;ep, which were increased the next spring
by twenty-eighth lambs. Twelve of these
were killed by the dogs. He had thirty-two
lambs dropped in the spring of 1870, but
the dogs permitted him to count only fif y
five sheep in the fall. The pring of 1871
brought him sixteen iambs, but ho could
shear only thirty-five sheep the next prin.
He bought seven sheep in the fall of 1870,
and sold during tle four years just five head;
and now his flock numbers but f ji ty-cna
sheep. His stock received, the ordinary
care, and it bad the range of tame and wild
grass. The cause of the great depletion of
his flock was dogs. Had there been no dogs
in his county, he would have figured his
profits thus:
Instead of 41 sheep, by a fair estimate
of increase, I should now have 250 head.
My wool of last spring, from 35 sheep,
weighed 124 pounds, which I sold as it
caine from the unwashed sheep at 4Bc per
pound, amounting to $60 14. From the
250 sheep I should have bad, but for the
dogs, at the same ratio of wool per head,
875 pounds, which, at tho price I sold fo,
would have given ma the nice sum of
$424 87. The difference between what I
received for my. wool, $60.14, and $424.37,
whtlshould have received, is just $304.23
the tax I have paid for keeping dogs!
And, remember, this is only for one year;
for every past year my revenue from wool
wcnld have increased from the start, if the
dogs had let my flock increase.' What a
showii'g for one moderate sheep grower
The single statement of the facts is an elo
quent plea for the destruction of the snarl"
ing curs that throDg the streets of every
village, and prowl about the yard of every
farm housa in the land. Tax these curs
out of existence, tnd the country will be
richer by millions than it Is now. Which
shall be protected, the dogs or the sheep?'
In a late addressjjbefore the Maryland
Fair, Mr. Greeley said: -
"I iirotest, at the threshold, against the
current notion that poor men must grow
poor crops, unless they have taken some
monkish vow to remain poor forever. Here
is one who has inherited or somehow ac
quired a cot and a few sterile acres, but has
no money, no team, no fertilizers: what
shall he do? I answer, whatever he may
do, let him not cultivate one acre more
than he can so feed and till as to give reas
onable assurance of a good crop. Far bet
ter wcrk out by the day or month than to
waste your time and strength on cultiva
tion to no purpose. Let him have one acre
plowed and subsoiled thoroughly, fertilize
it amply, set a few fruit trees along its
North side, and make each square rod do
its beet in the production of roots, vegeta
bles, and Indian corn, while working out
by the day four or five days in each week
and six days during the hurry and high
weges of the summer harvest, and he will
get ahead much faster than by half tilling
ten or fifteen halt-plowed, niggard, unma
nured acres, and thus growing what will
range, according to the season, from scanty
half crops to no crops at all. And, if you
tell me that he can find no one to hire him,
I say, than let him pull up stakes, 'go
West,' and keep moving till he finds some
region where honest work may be readily
exchanged for honest bread."
1 We do not see how (any poor man can
object to Mr. Greeley's advice. To culti
vate a few acres of thlu land in a way to
make it poorer than nature formed it, is
not to enrich the cultivator for his defective
Ullage, but to deteriorate the esrth for his
support. His error and poverty, by di
minishing the natural resources of our old
field, do a serious damage to mankind.
To rob a fellow man of his money, or steal
bis grain is an obvious crime. But is it
much better in principle to rob the soil of
those tilings that make grain and money
for the honest fanner ? All alike need their
daily food, and all succeeding generations
as much as the present. As God did net
create fertility for any one generation of
mankind, what moral right has man to
diminish the fmitfulness of any field in the
face of increasing mouths to ha fed,
and backs to be clothed? Increasing num
bers call for Increasing fertility, more grain,
more meat, and more wool per acre. An
Impoverished farm which can never emi.
grate from a county, or State, embodies
the curse of neslected mental culture m
the commuulty. The growth of children
demands the equal growth of,the earth's
natural power cf production, based on an
equal advance in human knowledge and
virtue. The word growth applies alike to
mind in i's highest moral and intellectual
cspabiii'i.s, to all amtnils, all plants, all
soils, all gases, ar,d all minerals. The poor
fanner liquid grow in knowledge, in skill,
and iu v.ty;th on any common lad,whe.th-
er he owns it, or works on shares, or labors
by toe month.
HOW-IfC)f I : Jt E A WE K 'A C K i,t
The emtemt K&tijKm; Mr. Mschj,
'siyi iBa aecoramg w nss rtpiy a i; inner
makes to the following question, his poti-
Iting his farmTTha queetionls: ""How
much meat do yoa make per acre over the
whole, of your farm?'' This nwttitr, says
the Jrfeh Farmerg-peeeUe, viMck j&j fe wV
men mink of, and yet, as Mr. llechl Bays,
is really, a testing point of merit:
"JSir. 'Campbell has ascertained that the
number of pounds of meat produced and
"old off bis farm, annually amounts to
66v4S21bs:. r221 lbs. ber acre. Now. Mr.
Acland fctated in The Journal of theBoual
Agricultural Society of England, 'That the
wrgest corn-growing farmer in Sioriolk a
most successful man produces 90 lbs. of
meat oaevery acre of his land;' and Mr.
Mechl asserts that 'the general average of
tho farnv of this kingdom 'generally do not
produce 20 lbs. of meat per acre.' Befer
ring la. Ms own case, ilr. Mechl says that
'he seilom makes less than 200 to 260 lbs.
of .meat per acre over the whole farm;' and,
he adds, 'it is the key to good crops.' The
production of meat on good fattening pas
tires ie,flome of the best grazing districts
in Ireland is estimated at 160 lbs. per acre.
The production oh Mr. Campbell's farm, is
over 220 lbs. per acre."
Southern farmers have yet to learn the
money value of "good fattening pastures;"
and it shall not be. the fault, of the TJ2noir
A2n Axkbicax if they do not fatten their
corn and cotton fields while producing the
flesh of farm stock at the lowest cost per
pound, and the highest quantity per-acre.-
Tho. central idea in fertilising a soil 1 to
coyer it with the droppings of stock, to far
as practicable, and supplement this home
made stable tndyard mail ore by the rather
free use el land plaster, superphosphate of
lime, wood ashes, lime and clover. This
practice will give in return rich grass, and a
large yield per acre,.and a paying crop of
fine mules, horses, fat cattle, sheep or wool
as the farmer may select as his leading pro
duct. So far as one's system of farming is
concerned, it matters little whether he sells
meat in beef, mutton and bacon, or horse
flesh and oxen frf labor, or dairy cbwi for
mflfand cattle raising' purposes". Nothing"
makes a farm look so well.as fine green pas
tures and meadows, with a fair proportion
of choice stock, in first rate condition. Such
animals always soil at a profit to the produ
cer, and operate indirectly to enrich the
sol as well as its owner. Hence the quan
tity of meat produced per acre ie a test of
agricultural skill.
Mr. James Yick of Rochester, N. T., (a
distinguished floriculturist) recommends
the hyacinth, narcissus, early tulips and
croc'tMvas as especially adapted to house
"Tho Egyptian lily is also a favorite, and
with a few geraniums, etc., will make a flue
collection. All the' lilies will grow well in
the house, the Iongiflorum being the first to
flbwer, the auratua next, and the lancl
folium sorts last. The dicentra. or Bleed
ing Heart, is so excellent for whiter bloom
ing and keeps so long iu flower that it is a
favorite with lis. It will please every one.
Tha ivy.and Madeira vine are fine climbers,
and furnish abundance of delicate foliage.
Mauy plants in the garden that "have, not
become exhausted by over-flowering may
be taken up and potted before hard frosts,
and iu this way a collection can be secured
at a very little cost of labor. The stock,
tropjBolum, dianthus, aaeratum, cotoeo
scanaens are desirable for this purpose."

copical observations on the living organ
isms in mils, produced rrom cows urinctng
stagnant water. He describes the appear
ance of the milk as exhibiting "an abnor
mal adhesiveness cf oil elobules, which had
accumulated in deusa misses instead of re
maining apart, as in neaitny mine, inter
mixed with the globules were dark-colored
spherical bodies of a .much larger s ize,
spores and filaments. On examination of
the water drank by the cows, it was found
to contain numerous spores of low forms of
vegetable life. The cows yielding the mor
bid milk appeared in health so far as appe
tite, rumination, pulse, breathing, and
state of skin were concerned, but the temp
erature was higher than nsual, and, on mi
croscopical examination of the blood, it was
found to contaiu certain ovoid bodies of at
least double the size of the ordinary blood
globules. Upon withholding the water, the
impurity of the milk at once disappeared.
The chain of evidence now appeared com

tpores which developed Into a luxuriant

I have a large quantify of grape vines
planted in the op-en ground, and trained on
p.'les and wires along the gravel walks. In
planting these I hd the holes dug about
25 inches deep; I then threw into each hole
Qve or s'x lumps of old plaster, about the
s za of my fist. I threw a little earth ovt r
these lump?, and then planted the vines in
the usual way. The result has been won
derful: the vines, which were not half an
iDch thick when planted three years ago,
are now two inches and more iu diameter,
and bear finely. The grapes are also freer
from disease. Oiher vines, not so treated,
ate much smaller and produce less, the
fruit being also more liable to disease. To
try the effect of this planter, in plautingtwo
American black walnuts we put the plaster
to oue and not to the other. The former
grew twice a3 fast as the other. Last year
wo dug aoout the roots of the one to which
no plaster was put, and we threw in seven
or eit;ht lumps of plaster among the roots;
the trees are now both of the same size,
and, though only four years old, are sixteen

think if wheat will germinate at all, it has

Wheat to be perfect, must be stacked
shortly after harvest. It then goes through
the sweating process in the stack, and the
grain absorbs from the straw a large amount
ot voiame matter tnat would otherwise
pass off, which adds to its weight ahout
three pounds per bushel, and to its flouring
aoout two pounds per ousuel. Uood wheat
thus prepared has its full vigor; it will
germinate quickly and grow strong, having
a large pulp to decompose, which furnishes
the young plant with vitality, until its roots
are sumctentiy larce to draw its sustenance
from the soil. Hence a good staud-of wheat

In considering the, country lying imme
diately around Chattanooga, more hogs
come irom bequatcme valley than from any
other source. From the immemorial the
farmers of Sequatchie have been famous as
hog raisers, and besides filling up their own
larders with specimen cruntors, they have
always had a Jarge surplus which.finds its
way into the Southern market. Of late
years, it is estimated that tho averge an
nual export will reach twenty thousand
head. 9
And, if we are to trust 'a : traditionary
etymology of its namp, this curious little
valley scooped put from between the
mountains has not been prolific of its long-
backed swine only since its settlement by
the pale face. It was inhabited by
the Cherokees, one of the most powerful
and most warlike of the Southern Indian
tribes. From them it received its name.
which tradition says should be 3pelled "te-
qua-chee" instead of Sequatchie, as the
present orthography usually makes it. The
three sylUbles of this Cherokee, word are
siid, each to have a signification which on
being combined to form the name of the
vail sy, very appropriately indicate its staple
product. The interpretation is Se, hog;.
qua, trougn anu ciee, valley meaning,
therefore, in plain English, hog trough-vai
ley. This, at least, is the translation given
us by an old farmer of the valley, who
brought .over his hundred head to market
the other day. On the other hand it might
be maintained with an equal show of rea
son that the name comes from the peculiar
physical formation of the valley, iu which it
may bo said to resemble a hog-trough,
which In the early settlement of tie country
was hollowed out Jroni the trunk of a tree,
in much the sauio manner as Sequatchie
valley is hollowed out of the top of the
The farmers of Sequatchie Valley raise
hegs because this is the cheapest mode
they have of getting their corn to market.
As they have 110 railroad or river transpor
tation, their most accommodating way is
to feed it to hogs and drive it out on foot.
Railroads are death on hog raising. If the
Cincinnati Southern road should happen to
be located on the Sequatchie, Valley route,
the farmers of that xegiou would, In a man
ner, quit fattenning hogs, and ship their
corn Southjjy rail.. The hog3 .are not gen
erally bred in the valley, but are bought in
Middle Tennessee, west of the mountains,
and brought over when about half grown.
If it is tho intention to graze them on the
rich mountain grass , they are driven over in
the spring say April. But if it is proposed
to feed them, only, the purchases are not
made until after harvest. The number of
hogs prepared for market depends very
much upon the success of the corn crop.
This year, tho corn crop was rather short,
and hence fewer hogs have been fattened
than nsual. Some years, when there i, a
good mast, a considerable number of hogs
come out to market later in the season.
These are fattened in the woods at very
little expense, subsisting almost entirely
upon chestnuts, acorns and nuts. Then
flesh, however, is not considered so delici
ous as those which are corn fed.
The counrty north of, and along the
Tennessee river, also exports a respectable
number of hogs, but the southern counties
next to the Georgia line, we believe, make
little or no pretentions in this lino. Chat

Dtntt of John F. morgan.
This old aud valued citizen of Columbia
died suddenly at his residence in that place
about 2 o'clock on Monday last from dis
ease 01 tne neart. until witnlu tne last
five or six years, Mr. Morgan was regarded
as possessing a vigorous constitution.
Sometime in 1860 or 1867 an aneurism of
the leg developed itself, from causes un
known, which resulted in amputation. His
general health became so far restored, how
ever, z inutiie the hope that the relief
was pfruiiditt. In this, however, his
friends 'fere deceived, and for sometime
past he -is.3 labor? 1 under an organic disease
of the tufirt, wir'ch finally terminated his
life suddenly tsd clmost without a struggle
Though graauallj ueclining,he dressed him
self as usual the tnorniDg of his death, was
with his family at the breakfast and dinner
table, and at the moment of his death was
sitting in his chair conversing with his son.
The intelligence of the sad event not only
shocked the community of which he had
been for many years an esteemed citizen,
but will sadden the hearts of a largo circle
cf revives and friends in different parts of
this apd other States.
Mr. Morgan xras horn In Knoxville, Tenn.,
Aug. la, 1814. Ualvin Morgan, ills father,
was distinguished as one of the most intelli
gent and enterprising merchants, as well as
one ot the most upright and usclul citizens,
of his day. The aul ject of this notico had
three brothers itutus (who died some
years since), Alexander, now residing In
Est Tennessee, aud Calvin Morgan, of
Maury county. He had, also, three sisters,
Mrs. Parks and Mrs. Chiisty, of St. Louis,
aud Mrs. McClunz, of Kuoxville. He was
also a cousin of Samuel M. Morgan, of
Mr. Morgan was educated to the business
of a merchant. After attaining his
majority he resided about a year
fcacn in tho cities of Nashville, St. Louis
and Philadelphia, and iu 1833 moved to
Columbia, aud has since followed the busi
ness of a merchant, without change, until
the interruption of the war. In 1840 he
was fortnuately married to iliss liouisa
Poiter, a daughter of Mr. William Porter, a
highly esteemed citizen oft iat county. He
left but two children, Mr. Wm. P. Morgan
and Mrs. Lucius Fnerson, both of Colum
bia. Without stopping to indulge in words of
prise, which cannot reach tho dull, coia
ear of dea'h, iti3 well to say for the benefit
of the Uviok, that lew men nave passeu
through the parplexins cares of a long busi
ness life and left a more unquestioned rep
utation for strict integrity iu all his deal
ings than John F. Morgan. It has bean
the good fortune of the writer of this brief
notice to bava known him in tho intimate
relations, also, of neighbor and friend, and
to have found him liberal, cordial and kind.
In his domestic life few were so affectionate
and indukeht. and few had, in return,
more to cheer and make happy the fireside
of boma X.
